matthews is at the university of denver, which is the site of tonight's debate. chris, i've been watching you this past hour. i can sense the excitement that you feel, that i feel as well. i mean, it is a big night when these candidates speak at their conventions, but tonight the tv audience for this debate could be almost twice the size as the convention audience. just a huge night. what are each of these guys thinking they need to do tonight? >> well, i think obama's the one i'm focused on, the president. because everybody's been talking about, it's romney's big chance, it's romney's opportunity, blah, blah, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he deal with that in the debate for an hour and a half? so will obama go after the guy, not play defense, not

. this is one of the great frustrations that chris matthews had and ed and the entire panel at msnbc. they were so angry and i think for good reason because there were basic -- >> joe, this is an important question. it's not just the analysts, it's the average american had the answers for that. clearly, this was not like chris matthews knew and he didn't know. every person i talked to said, well, why didn't he say this? he could not ha he couldn't not have the answers. >> hold on. this isn't a debate or chris or ed. this is a debate to win the election. i'm sorry, it may have been disappointing, but there was something else going on. you have the jobs numbers coming out at 8:30 this morning in just a couple of hours. you have a lot of other things at play, and he's in a certain position in this race. there must have been, as flummoxing as it was to watch, a strategy. what was it? >> i haven't said this for a very long time. i'll say it again, though. debates are where you show your depth of understanding about politics. i've seen 1,000 debates. i've participated in, you know, scores of debates.

our broadcast tomorrow afternoon before the big debate. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> so does romney like you? let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. on the way to denver. but let me start with where we are this night before the first presidential debate. our late and much respected colleague tim russert used to say, numbers, numbers, numbers, and that's what this election comes down do, who gets that 270 electoral votes and who doesn't. what's fascinating this year is what numbers seem to matter most in deciding voters and how they do vote. two numbers jump out at me this election year. the first, which got famous months ago, is 1%. that top, the people making the most, getting the best breaks on taxes and other things. the second number that just broke out recently is 47%. it's that part of america that mitt romney has dismissed as freeloaders, moochers, takers in his words. i'm joined by howard fineman with "the huffington post." also we have romney's -- let's take a look at this howard, romney's 47% comments had a lasting impact

the houla. he had some very valid point. >> stephanie: yeah. i think people thought chris matthews was going to stroke out on the air. >> yeah. >> stephanie: i get it that the expectations were so low for mitt, but it's like david axelrod said, give this a second and as we have we see how it has been so thoroughly fact checked that they are going to use this stuff in ad now. >> caller: yeah, even today, though, most of the networks are still claiming romney is a win. which makes me wonder what is their criteria? because he got up there and lied. bullied the debate the moderator, the president. he took the opposite side of his own platform. he applied the criticisms that he is getting to the president, like the fact that he is making up facts and wants to cut medicare benefits. it just doesn't look like a win to me. >> stephanie: i'll tell you what is a win unemployment rate drops to 7.8%. >> caller: i love it but they are now saying it is a conspiracy. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: it just makes my head want to split open and my eyeballs drop out of my head. >>

to do is go hit the rerun of you doing chris matthews and i -- that makes my day. >> john: you mean on the cd? that's for the folks in radioland, i do the stephanie miller sexy liberal comedy tour with stephanie and hal sparks and aisha tyler. our album came out last christmas. i do an impression of chris matthews holding a five panel discussion where only chris matthews gets to talk. it guarantees i will never be invited on his show. >> caller: last thing i was going to say is all president obama has to do is say whatever mitt romney says is say hey your goal was not to let me do anything so i guess you did your job. no matter what they say that's all they've done is block him from doing anything and i'm surprised that he even helped the homeowners. i was one of them that got a really good deal. i was surprised that he even got that through because all he has to do is say wasn't your job not to let me -- >> john: you're right lilly. if i were the president, i would talk more about the jobs bill that was blocked.

to talk with chris matthews who had very strong feelings about the debate. but we want to begin with chuck todd, chief white house correspondent in denver this morning. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: well, good morning, savannah. look, this may have been the most substantive debate in the television era. and mitt romney dealt with it as if his campaign depended on it while a subdued president obama let romney dictate the terms of the debate. not exactly the gift the president was looking for on his 20th wedding anniversary. >> and so i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> reporter: from the very beginning, mitt romney displayed a confident and commanding presence on stage, almost one-upping the president from the start. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you can imagine here with me. >> that set the tone as romney seemed to control the tempo, sometimes even serving as the moderator. >> let's get ba

. i'm chris matthews in washington. on the way to denver. let me start with this brand new nbc/wall street journal poll out tonight. what it shows in addition to an obama leading that's hardening is a deep concern that mitt romney said about that 47% of the country he says can't be counted on to meet its responsibility. it's that part of the country that romney has dismissed as free-loaders, moochers, takers. people, especially veteran families, people retired on social security, regular americans, that is, don't like being dismissed that way, injury added by insult. i'm joined by chuck todd and howard fineman with "the huffington post." the latest poll shows among likely voters the president leads 49% to 46% for romney. that's down net two points from two weeks ago when the president was up by five. to what to you attribute the movement, chuck todd? >> well, first of all, the more important number has always been the president sitting at 49% or 50%. i would go through his job approval rating at 49%, his ballot test at 49%, those converge, and that's what matters and 49% puts y

on this channel, i thought msnbc's coverage after this was great last night. i was watching chris matthews. he got there about the same time barack obama did. he didn't have any trouble with energy. >> no. >> he didn't have any trouble. >> he was wired and on top of it. >> speaking our friends at current. we commented on jennifer granholm's exuberance during the speech. if you tuk her exushance and combined it with barack obama's nonexuberance, you could have found a happy balance there. you have the perfect candidate. >> we could morph them. we need a hybrid. >> can we merge those together? >> emotionally mitt is much closer to jennifer on that scale. he seemed caffeinated and on ludes and stuff like that. >> he had a diet coke and maybe two. >> he seemed much more energized than we've seen. >> think of the republican primary debates. it was newt gingrich and rick santorum. he needed to turn it on in the republican primaries, and he did. >> steve, what do you think the ultimate impact is going to be? is this the game change moment to use the term that we hate? >> i swear we're living in this mirr

. "hardball" is next. >>> the day after. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good eke. i'm chris matthews back in washington. let me start tonight with two big questions, "hardball" questions if you will. one, why? why did what happened last night happen? why did a president who has proven himself as a policy expert and world class politician let the other guy take charge? because if he can't answer that question, he may be doomed to defeat in the remaining two debat debates. second big question, can a victory over the facts of last night's debate, what was true and what was not, turn the tables now? can barack obama win by getting out the word he didn't get out last night? and both are big questions tonight that might just decide this presidential election. i'm joined by governor ed rendell and ron reagan, both msnbc analysts. this is a tough blog by a guy who has been very strong for obama over the years. andrew sullivan of the daily beast. he wrote this last night, basically just at the end of the debate. this was a dissaster for the president for the key people he needs to reach. his effet
